Sepalika raises seed funds to promote healthy lifestyles in India



Mumbai-based health portal Sepalika has raised $750,000 in seed funding from Accel Partners.

Sepalika launched last March as a source of online help for Indians suffering chronic health conditions like diabetes, obesity and heart disease, as well as prescription drug abuse. Its focus is on helping people make lifestyle changes and healthy choices to curb dependence on drugs.

India is grappling with a surge in non-communicable diseases, which account for 60 percent of deaths in the country and could have an economic impact in the trillions of dollars in the next decade.

Sepalika’s early round of funding will be used to expand the platform’s content, which currently provides information on 11 illnesses for users in India. It is also available in the U.S.
